Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Best Live Bands...pick a three yr period and explain

Perhaps Zep became too popular or "commercial". I think back to a Pink Floyd discussion here a year or so ago where the merits of Dark Side were discussed and the difference between overrated vs overplayed. I feel the same way about LZ4. I really cant listen to any songs from that album, largely because the radio has ruined it. Same with some other songs from Houses of the Holy. On the other hand, I think the Song Remans the Same is brilliant. I dont know what kind of editing was done (can anyone chime in on this?) but seeing Page playing is really a treat, especially the title song and Rain Song. He was way ahead of his time with some of the things he was doing (especially studio work). I really enjoy the later work- the less commercial stuff- Graffiti and Presence. Anyway, during the time period of Song Remains the Same, I think they were one of the best live acts. Other than seeing Jerry, they would be one of my first choices to see live.

yeah I can. Picked up the "Garden Tapes" awhile back and there's a link talking about which parts of the album are from which show. I don't think but maybe one song is complete. Absolutely insane how much editing was done to a single track. See for yourself.I've always known it was heavily edited, the band did NOT sound that precise and clean by that point ,but it's still an amazing masterpeice from start to finish.
